I’m skeptical of anyone without an app these days so it is a great relief to see The Open Championship launch their own, for iPhone and Android handsets.
The App will broadcast @TheOpen LIVE, the official online channel which we mentioned last week. It also has access to live coverage, video highlights, news stories, but most importantly real-time scoring updates.
The Open Championship App is free and available from iTunes and the Android Marketplace.
I’d also recommend investigating ‘Score Centre+’ for your computer. It is a live desktop console with live scoring, up-to-date news and video coverage of The Open Championship.
The tournament will also have a big presence in social media on Facebook, (Facebook.com/The-Open-Championship), Twitter (Twitter.com/The_Open_Champ) and Youtube (Youtube.com/OpenChampionship).
